  1. I saw the Brighton and Manchester shows and this tour is phenomenal! I have seen Blondie over 20 times since they reformed and these shows are definitely among the best. The order of the setlist - and the setlist itself - are fantastic, Debbie sounds better live than she has in years (for how much I love Debbie, she has definitely phoned it in on some tours) and her styling was great. The crowds were fantastic and engaged - I never thought I would hear a packed arena of nearly 20,000 people sing along to "Picture This". I might go a third time because I don't know if they will tour again, and even if they do I don't know how it could top this.

  2. I echo all the tour love. I saw them last night and it was amazing. The opening song in particular was a blast and I've never heard them perform it before. We had one song cut out but they also did 'Please please me' as they always do when they play Liverpool.
     
  3. What song did they cut?
    We had My Monster added in Manchester.

  4. This is only the second tour since of theirs since No Exit I haven't been to. Would loved to have gone but glad to hear it was good.

    Here's hoping they manage to tour for their upcoming 50th anniversary.
     
  5. No exit, which wasn't a great loss! I'd have preferred 'Denis' which I don't ever recall them doing.
     
  6. That's a shame as it was good to hear it live again.

  7. Another tour where Doom or destiny was paid dust. I know it's not the same without Joan Jett but, really?

  8. Rapture was a highlight for me - the lighting, the screens, the setting were all on point and created such a mood. The screens throughout were all done very well actually. I had seen Blondie during the Pollinator era but this time was definitely stronger.
    I hope they get some new music out this year and I really hope they can find a way to get No Exit, The Curse of Blondie and Panic of Girls onto streaming. The latter is one of my favourite albums of them in recent years and it was so nice to hear Mother and What I Heard performed live during this tour.
     
  9. Looks like the details for the box set are being finalized.

    The 8-disc set:

  10. There's also going to be a 3-disc set.

  11. I wonder if there's gonna be an ever larger box set. Didn't they tease it basically including every single track from the era? I imagine the 3-disc version is just scooping up all of the tracks that previously weren't on the albums themselves.
    These do look wonderful, not gonna lie, I'm just greedy!
    ~edit: Wait, the 8-disc is all there is to it, I'm sorry for missing on this announcement from ages ago.

  19. Is the total count the same between the 8CD and the Super Deluxe?

    The press release makes it seem that way but the recordstore.co.uk write up says the 8CD has

  20. It appears it's the same content across both. Just checked the album tracklists, and there are indeed 72 album tracks in total, which means the 52 bonus tracks are present on every format. A full tracklist showing up somewhere wouldn't kill them though!
    The 3CD are as posted by @moorje.
